Our Centre is rated 'Exceeding' National Quality Standards
Operating over 5 classrooms all on ground level, each sunlit classroom has direct access to lovely, natural outdoor areas.
Our children are given the opportunity to play outdoors in large yards designated to each age group. We also have a community garden and chickens that all children have the opportunity to engage with.
Our centre is located on the grounds of Armadale House, which has a significant history. In 1876, James Munro built Armadale House as his private residence. Munro was a prominent business man and later became the Premier of Victoria during the land boom of the 1880’s. Armadale House was named after Munro’s Scottish birthplace. The suburb Armadale was later named after Armadale House.
At Explorers, we like to give our children EXTRA! That’s why our Extras Program has been created to enhance the children’s experience and provide opportunities for learning in specialised areas. All children are welcome to participate in this program at no additional cost.
These programs include Gardening & Sustainability, Creative Arts, Music & Movement, French and Speech Therapy.

Our child initiated, play based program stimulates children’s learning, exploration and social connections.
Our Kindergarten programs use a play based approach that emphasises learning through exploration and investigation. The program encourages children to be creative in all areas, whether it is problem solving or the expressive arts. It also encourages lateral thinking and positive social interactions.
Our program runs for extended hours – from 8am until 5.30pm.
Please park on Munro Street and enter through the yellow gate.
